Hi all.
It has now been a week since I had the Epidural, I am in severe pain, to the point that my GP had to come to my home and inject me with morphin, I already take it in tablet form twice daily.  I am now just about able to get out of bed but only with help.
To be honest I think all it has done is upset everything else, as all my pains are back and they are all much worse.
To make tou titter though I will tell you that I slid out of bed and got myself  trapped between bed and bedside table, as I had only just woken up I was so stiff I couldn't do much, good job my drugs where where I could reach them, I just had to wait for them to start to work before I could free myself, no damage done, just glad there wasn't anyone  around to take a picture. shocked

Oh, I am so sorry this happened. Stiffness and pain do not make for a good morning. I am glad your doctor came to your home.

Does he know why you are in such pain?

WOW!  What a terrible thing.  I don't think I'd get any more of those epidurals if I were you but somehow I don't think I had to tell you that!  smilewinkgrin   I hope they wear off soon.  Sometimes the treatment is worse than the illness. 
I'm glad you got unwedged.  smhair    At least you don't have to live that one down!  LOL  But I do hope you are feeling much, much better soon.
